This just in from the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD): Santa is due in San Juan Capistrano between 9 p.m. and midnight.
I guess they never know how weather conditions might slow the old, jolly guy. Hopefully, the lighter load as he makes his way toward the end of his journey will hasten his arrival in our fair town.
If he can dodge those obstacles, our own shouldn’t be too much problem for him.
I notice this year, they're not really showing any major landmarks. When Santa "lands" in a city, he dodges all over the place, delivering hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of presents, like a ricocheting bullet.
I wonder when that changed? Hmmm, feeling old.
The graphics have gotten a lot better over the years, I see, especially the reindeer. As I write this, Santa is over Cairo, Egypt.
To check on his progress as he flies toward San Juan Capistrano go to noradsanta.org.
Checking in on NORAD Santa's got me nostalgic for the earlier days. But each year brings something new to Christmas. Last year, our middle son declared that we should make it a tradition to get new pajamas each year for Christmas. This year, he says we should wear our new pajamas all day, starting today!
Gotta go change ...
Merry Christmas everyone! Enjoy the holiday!
